If I have posted it in the wrong section, I apologize and trust that it'll be moved to the correct place. I am looking to upgrade my PC somewhat. My desire is for it to go faster and being able to handle games (not necessarily the newest of the newest), but more importantly, I wish it to be able to record games like Oblivion using Fraps without it lagging itself to death. For that, I wonder if that speed comes from the ram or from the motherboard most? I am not very knowledged about computers, I used to be better but I wasn't never really that interested. Either way, here are my speccs (those I know of); * AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ 2.80 GHz * 4 GB Ram ( 4x 1 Ram sticks ) * GeForce 5600 GT * Vista 64 Home I've been thinking if it'd be possible to switch the Ram sticks into 2 GB / 4x Sticks or maybe 2x 4 GB sticks, but could my computer handle that, would they fit? I know my graphics card is outdated but it's hanging on, though what would be a viable upgrade? My only true fear is if I have to replace the processor / motherboard (aren't they the same?) if I want to record while playing or such stuff. Thanks on before hand for your responses.
